    PI Vision is intend to replace Process Book, but is still missing a powerful feature Process Book has: Datasets.

    It is impossible to replace Process Book datasets by AF calculations. Calculations are often used for troubleshooting, and you cannot anticipate every single type of calculation you gonna need to use in the future.

    Sometimes it is impossible to have to wait for your admins to create the needed calculation on AF, due to a need of fast decision making based on real time data.

    Osisoft needs to implement something similar to Process Book Datasets on PI Vison ad-hoc screens to fill this gab and allow full transition from Process Book to PI Vision.

    Input coming from Enel - need described as: capability to perform simple operation on Tags that means + - : x; creation of simple alert with notification, overall emails or mobile text message

    Simple calculations needs to be on PI Vision. Most calculations we do in PI AF but basic users who just want to create a simple display are now limited to the attributes provided. This makes it frustrating for users when just wanting to do a simple sum...

    Users very need to use the simplest calculation (sum etc.) without the AF and generated attributes.

  • emjohnson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    General users need the ability to create ad-hoc calcs without the need to access to AF to generate attributes.

    Add the ability to perform expressions directly in PI Vision. For example, easily trend the sum of two tags. This was a very useful feature with PHD / Uniformance Process Studio that I'm losing with the conversion to PI!!!

    This is the first thing my users ask me about, and then, they are rather disappointed to learn that PI Vision has no such capabilities. It would certainly be very very very useful feature. Please start developing this into PI Vision!

    It would be convenient to be able to do calclulations (like datasets in pdi) in a display.
    For example while im searching a tag a calculation window could pop out (with the basic calcs..'+','-','*',"/" ) and then i can just  drag/drop the tag,search for another tag drag/drop it and make the numerical operation!

    Provide the ability to perform calculations in a trend.  Similar to the data sets in ProcessBook.

    Can you provide an status update please? It has been created for almost a year.

  • oul.mot commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Could we apply some basic calculations (A+B) on the fly for the traces that are on the trend? We are interested in having this done on the user side rather the server side.

  • oul.mot commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Users would like to trend using expressions such as TagA + TagB, without creating performance equations or AF analyses.
